The Vietnam and firefighter memorials are both fabulous. The trees are great and so nicely marked. Exceptional grounds and capital.

Was just there enjoying the beautiful park, being in attendance of the first Portuguese Veterans Memorial ceremony. Taking a tour of the State Capital is an experience that is valuable to any Californian.

It was blazing hot for our visit here but it was well worth it. Lovely rose gardens, trees from all over the world and touching memorials. A very special place in the heart of Sacramento.
